Food sensitivities can play a role in many common health conditions. The MRT Food Sensitivity Test can help get you answers to health issues such as digestive problems, headaches, joint and muscle pain, skin issues, and fatigue- which are all symptoms that can be caused by our immune system's response to foods, additives, and/or other substances in our diet.
Sometimes, reactive food is easy to identify, but other times it is difficult to pinpoint. Any food can be reactive, even those we consider to be "healthy."
MRT stands for Mediator Release Test. The single common component of all diet-induced inflammatory reactions is proinflammatory and proalgesic mediator release from white cells. It’s the release of cytokines, histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc., from neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils and, lymphocytes that lead to all the negative clinical effects a food-sensitivity sufferer endures. Because of the vast array of potential mediators and reacting cells, measuring volumetric changes in all circulating white cells after antigen challenge is the most logical, direct, comprehensive, and functional measure of food sensitivity reactions.
MRT is the foundation of fully addressing food sensitivities and achieving the maximum outcomes in the shortest period of time.
